Family Fun on NYE!

We were vacationing in San Antonio and visited The Melting Pot for NYE. Very nice experience. At first we were seated at a table across from the washrooms, which is not how I wanted to spend my NYE. We asked the manager if we could wait for another table and, even though they were completely... read more

Super cozy and romantic atmosphere. Had the 3 course experience and every course was better than the last. The duck was amazing. The chocolate was the best. I highly recommend.

Great place to sit and talk and slowly eat. Not a sit and stuff yourself kind of place, since you cook each piece it forces you to eat how you should- slowly, which also gives you alot of time for conversation. Great date night, but girls night is so fun! If you're wanting a big thick steak, keep looking. If... More

Ambiance was dark and settling, allowing for a romantic setting. Menu is broad, yet applicable. Staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and prompt. Food was decent, yet thoughtful. All in all, a decent night out. Price was $58 for two on a shared four course. Portions were small for the price, but this is glorified fondu. Wife and I enjoyed but did... More

6/26/2015 We came here since we were in town celebrating my husband's birthday. It is in a weird location with Insurance companies, salon or something and an apartment complex. When making the reservations I did let them know we will be celebrating my husband's birthday and I am a Vegetarian. They did have a card waiting for my husband's birthday.... More

Zander was our server for my father's birthday and Father's Day dinner. He made suggestions for each part of our 4 course meal and every suggestion was PERFECT. He was very attentive and made pleasant and genuine conversation. To compliment his exceptional service...the food was perfect. Go for The Mojo broth and the creme brûlée white chocolate for dessert.

My husband and I have not been here since our fifth wedding anniversary. Having kids puts a damper on your ability to have date nights, so when our friend offered to babysit on my husband's birthday, we booked a reservation at the Melting Pot. The Melting Pot is more upscale than your average casual restaurant; no need to dress-up (but... More

From the moment we sat down it took four hours before we left. The server seemed to think this was normal, unapologetic. Appetizers and dessert was great. Atmosphere was great. Unique experience. But the prices are high for what you truly get.
